Interim Guidance for Long-Term Care: Transferring between Long-Term Care and other Healthcare Settings

Washington State Department of Health has updated their Interim Guidance for Long Term Care:  Transfers between Long-Term Care and other Healthcare Settings.  When transferring LTCF residents between healthcare facilities, safe processes and bidirectional communication are critical.  Efficient and safe transfers between facilities are essential to maintain capacity in acute care hospitals and other healthcare facilities. Facilities should follow CDC’s Interim Infection Prevention and Control Recommendations for Patients with Suspected or Confirmed Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID19) in Healthcare Settings and Washington State Department of Health’s Personal Protective Equipment for Healthcare Personnel (HCP) for Patients with Suspected or Confirmed COVID-19.
